Why Our Impact Windows Are Better Than Storm Windows for Homes in Houston, TX
Does your home in Houston, Texas, still have ordinary windows? If so, you’re smart to be shopping for a better way to protect your home from the damage that can result when powerful winds hurl branches, yard ornaments, and other debris at your windows during a hurricane or tropical storm. Storm windows are protective add-on windows that can be installed over your existing windows. However, there are several drawbacks to relying on storm windows for hurricane protection. At NewSouth Window Solutions, where we specialize in crafting the ideal replacement windows for coastal-area homes, we offer impact-resistant windows as a better alternative. Read on to learn some of the reasons why.
Storm Windows vs. Impact Windows
One of the most important differences between storm windows and hurricane impact windows is that storm windows are typically designed to be installed and removed as needed, while the impact windows from our company are permanently installed, offering reliable storm protection year-round. They operate as regular windows do, whereas storm windows can’t be opened and closed as easily, and many can’t be opened at all. Therefore, storm windows come with many of the same inconveniences as plywood and hurricane shutters.
On the other hand, when you trust NewSouth Window Solutions to outfit your home with beautiful new impact windows, you’ll receive windows that are:
- Specially engineered with metal-reinforced, solid uPVC frames and ultra-tough laminated glass
- Tested by third-party experts to make sure they meet High-Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) standards
- Expertly installed by factory-trained technicians who meet strict standards for hurricane window installation
- Backed by one of the nation’s best warranties—a lifetime warranty that covers both the impact windows and their installation
